NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEWNOTABLE BOOK OF THE YEAR

No journalist has reckoned with the psychology of war as intimately as David Finkel. In The Good Soldiers,
his bestselling account from the front lines of Baghdad, Finkel
embedded with the men of the 2-16 Infantry Battalion as they carried out
the infamous “surge,” a grueling fifteen-month tour that changed them
all forever.

In Thank You for Your Service, Finkel follows many of those
same men as they return home and struggle to reintegrate—both into their
family lives and into American society at large. He is with them in
their most intimate, painful, and hopeful moments as they try to
recover, and in doing so, he creates an indelible, essential portrait of
what life after war is like—not just for these soldiers, but for their
wives, widows, children, and friends, and for the professionals who are
truly trying, and to a great degree failing, to undo the damage that has
been done. Thank You for Your Service is an act of
understanding, and it offers a more complete picture than we have ever
had of two essential questions: When we ask young men and women to go to
war, what are we asking of them? And when they return, what are we
thanking them for?
